The Latest RV Park and Campground Briefs
From the Journal Review, Crawfordsville:
Select Indiana state parks will close temporarily to allow for controlled deer reductions in the coming weeks.
The dates for the temporary closings are Nov. 13 and 14, and Nov. 26 and 27.
The state parks affected are Chain O’Lakes, Charlestown, Fort Harrison, Harmonie, Ouabache, Prophetstown, Shades, Shakamak, Spring Mill, Tippecanoe River, Turkey Run, Versailles and Whitewater Memorial. These state parks will close to the general public the evening before each of the two efforts and reopen the morning after each two-day reduction.
Individuals familiar with the annual schedule should note that the first round is on Tuesday and Wednesday rather than the traditional Monday-Tuesday because Nov. 12 is a state holiday. The traditional Monday-Tuesday schedule returns for the second round on Nov. 26 and 27.
From WPMI-TV, Mobile:
Revelers planning on bringing an RV to next year’s Mardi Gras festivities in Mobile better act quickly.
The Mobile Civic Center, where an informal RV park assembles for the annual festivities, says there are a very limited number of RV hookup spots remaining.
Those spots are on a first-come, first-served basis.
The spots are for RV hookup only and no free standing RV parking is available.
Each spot can be reserved for $912, if reserved by Dec. 12.
That price is for the entire Mardi Gras season.

From the Tioga Tribune:
Sonya New is providing freshly baked goodies to oil patch workers from her “Simply Cakes” restaurant in White Earth. New’s bakery is serving up homemade quiche, muffins and cinnamon rolls every morning, along with plain old Folgers coffee — the full strength stuff.
The food is served out of a walk up window in a rented modular unit parked on the edge of the Railroad Springs RV Park, just east of the grain elevator on White Earth Road.
